Anyone mentioning Runnymede could be referring to one of two things. Firstly, there is a borough by this name in Surrey. Secondly, it is also the name of a so-called water meadow in the area that is close to the River Thames. The borough takes its name from that same Thames area. A Runnymede accident claim, therefore, could be related to an accident that has occurred anywhere in this region.
They don’t happen very often at all here, but since things can go wrong in all manner of ways no matter where you live or work, there’s always a chance of something happening. If it did, however, and it happened to you, it’s understandable that you may not know what to do next.
How can you find out whether it’s possible to get compensation?
Some people don’t even think about the prospect of compensation when they’re hurt. They may simply brush off the accident or forget about it and lose their chance to claim. In other situations, they may think they’re not badly injured enough to make it worth claiming.
Yet every year, some people are awarded small amounts of compensation that have still made a difference to them. Moreover, you can never tell how much you might get until you make a claim – assuming of course you’re in a position to do that.
Does your accident look likely to result in compensation?
No one expects to find themselves in a situation of this sort, which is precisely why it’s good to get information on how to figure out whether compensation might be a possibility. Serious accidents that have been caused by a third party should definitely be referred to a personal injury lawyer, but what about those that are far less serious? In truth, even minor injuries might be worth exploring in this sense, because the real issue is whether someone else was the cause of those injuries.
